Great run today at Pineland with the gang. Goal was to get in between 10-15 miles and I ended up with 13. Felt great doing so. Good run.
I've gotten in a great week and a half week of training since finding out about the Western States cancellation. I was able to take advantage of the taper I had been in, get in some more final training but still leave ample room to recover during a two week taper leading up to the Vermont 100. 17 hours on the trails this week, much of it on some buttkicking mountains, with still one more day to go. I'm feeling good heading into that race.
After today's run, we all convened at James' house for a little WS100 cancellation pity party/VT100 here we come party. Thanks for hosting it James and thanks Stephen and family for the killer sweatshirt and goodie bag! It was a great time and fun hanging out with everyone.
